Per the Listing: “Not a home, house, dwell, abode or pad. This is a sanctuary. A space where people gather around the cozy fireplace in winter, some stealing first kisses. Sumptuous meals prepared with love in the ample kitchen. Wishes buried under the grand Oak in back. Laughter heard around the fire-pit in springtime, and plans for a future drawn in the detached designer’s studio. Master suite/bath opens to a intimate garden of earthly delights. A door opens to expose a twisting stairway to a secret attic bedroom of surprises. This custom restored home has literally risen from the ashes of 2010. Graced with an incredible aesthetic, and a desire to build this home for generations to come, our client created this peaceful nest. Step out and walk minutes to the new grooviest street in the city, York Blvd. , gateway to Yorklandia. Nosheries. Boutiques. Art. Vibes. Swagger and NELA art walk~~~all so close, and when you shut that door, all so very far away.”
The listing is provided by Deirdre Salomone of Keller Williams who should really win some sort of writing award for this listing. We’ve heard the Yorklandia moniker before, but we never really believed in it until Deirdre made us believe. All of our hopes and wishes are buried beneath that oak tree, next to the spot where we’ll keep our backyard beehive.
